(Client Success Story) I got emotional reading his email…

Are you expecting a big change in your career/life overnight? 

Well, this is what my client Adam expected when he started working with me…

This is not how things played out for him… and for the better!

Following my guidance, using patience and listening to his own true voice, he ended up over time in the perfect work-life balance situation that matched everything he wanted, including releasing an album with his band!

Listen to his story in the video below.

Or jump right below the video to read his email and find his band on Spotify,


When Adam started working with me:

  • He was bored, unchallenged, and depressed in his work.
  • The long daily commute was killing him, as well as working at a desk from 9 to 5, and lacking the flexibility and freedom he was craving.
  • As a result, he could not spend as much quality time with his partner and kids, and could not develop his passion to play drums as much as he desired. He wanted to be part of a band, but could not carve out enough time because of his commute and work situation.


Following my guidance through the Roadmap to the Career You Love program and listening to his own true voice, the perfect work/life situation progressively unfolded for him. Read his email below.

Hi Isabelle-

I thought I would take a minute to update you on my career since I went through your program last year. In short, I have made some subtle and not so subtle adjustments of my work role which has enabled a much better actualization of my true self!

My career “success story” is more subtle than other case studies but has worked wonderfully. I thought it would be good for you to have as a reference in the event others have a similar experience as mine. I think I was expecting a big change over night which is not how things played out but I ended up in a great work-life balance situation over time. Patience and listening to one’s true voice is the key!

I am still at the same company and working in the solar industry. I was able to transition my role to “Product Management” which actually plays wonderfully into my “Improviser” tendencies. It also does not involve managing people directly which I actually quite like because it facilitates my need to feel “free”. This is typical of product management roles where it involves collaborating (something I do well) with all parts of the organization but does not involve managing others peoples time. Better yet, I requested flexible hours (up to 50%) and work from home a majority of the time. The net result is having the security of a formal “job” but the flexibility of working for myself and dictating my own schedule.

My ability to negotiate this outcome was a direct result of the authentic-self work we did. I was very comfortable negotiation for this situation because I knew it would work better for me and so was able to convince my boss (the CEO) as well. But that’s not the best part…. With my more flexible schedule I was invited to join a band. The universe delivered that one up right on cue!. My band has already recorded an album which is streaming on applemusic and spotify. We even did a little tour to Southern California a few weeks ago.

So, although I did not quit my corporate job and join the circus I was able to sculpt my career to what works best for me in a very non-traditional way.Simply knowing what I wanted and listening to my authentic self changed everything.

Thank you so much for your help. I hope this story will help someone else who may be struggling with what “success” looks like.

Best Wishes!

Adam Detrick

To your brilliance,


P.S. What will it take for you to be a success story— and if you are already a success story or on your way to one, please share with me. I want to hear and cheer you on!

Would you stay married to someone you hate?

Do you know that you spend MORE time at work than in your romantic relationship? 


That’s right.

Let’s do the math.

In days:

  • 5 days out of 7 days per week
  • 240 days out of 365 days/year (if you take 4 weeks of vacation/year; this is often less in North America)
  • 2,400 days out of  3,650 days for 10 years

In hours:

  • 8 hours/day (minimum; it may be even more)
  • 56 hours per week
  • 1,920 hours per year
  • 19,200 hours for 10 years.


Imagine if you hate your work, or feel bored and unmotivated….

This is the TIME you spent unhappy and unfulfilled in your life.

It’s like being married to someone you hate, day after day, year after year.

How would that feel?

Would you stay married to someone you hate for 10, 20, 30 years?

Would you?

Probably not.

Why does work should be any different?

Why should you waste your life in work you hate for years and even decades?

Ponder that.

It does not have to be that way. 

This is why I created the program Roadmap To A Career You Love.

So that you can find work you love and that gets you excited to get out of bed every morning.

I run this group program only twice a year and it is open for enrollment now for a limited period of time.

Are you thinking: “Maybe there is something wrong with me if I haven’t figured it out, maybe I am not smart enough, or maybe I am broken?” Are you wondering: “What is wrong with me, why has everybody else figured it out and I haven’t?”
